Can a Agent or home owner be held libel for selling a house with mold damge?
If you have an issue with this you should consult your attorney. Agents and sellers can protect themselves by disclosing and proper documentation.

I am a property investor based in China and interested in buying in the greater Seattle area. Where can I find good mortgage terms?
You have to talk to a few local lenders and see what options you have.

I am buying VA. Should I pay for the appraisel, and what about the inspection, should I pay for that.?
if you like to get inspections it is a great idea. In case there is any damage to the house you will know before you end up buying.

Ali Qureshi answered:
If my asking price is higher than the appraised price am I required to lower the price or can I hold out for the higher price?
It all depends on the purchase contract. If there are any wording that describes your question in the purchase contract then the price should reflect that.

Is there a program or calculator to provide home valuation after a major remodel expense that considers PV, appreciation and determines ROI?
There are formulas that you can find on google that will create a cash flow chart for you.

Offered above asking, now stressed about appraisal.
If you had removed appraisal contingency and appraisal comes in low then that is a concern. Otherwise I wouldn't worry .

A close friend of our family's (non-resident alien in the US) is offering to transfer the deed of his rental in WA state to me as a quick claim deed.
For your own safety and protection I recommend you hire a Real Estate Attorney as well as an accountant for the tax issues. Realtors are not experts in either fields.
